Episode 2 and Fa'ad is a new man. Less the goofy foreigner from the pilot but now suave, worldly and calculating and trying to get Emmy into bed. Even though he mixes his Bs and Vs. Plus the Fa'ad has bushiest tuft of chest hair since Sean Connery was James Bond and Mike Myers was making fun of Sean Connery as James Bond with Austin Powers. His chest hair has to be a merkin, hasn't it?

They piled on even more Arrested Development references. It's really hard to "glisten" under the stairs ("It's really hard to hear under the tree house" - a fantastic comedy sequence I had to DVRewind and watch a couple of times because it was so good). And every time David Cross said "Come on!" (STOP SAYING THAT!)

Puddle's voice over was scaled back and it's much more effective in little bursts.

The entire Emmy doesn't shave her legs series of gags kept paying off.

But my favorite was:

"The last thing you'll see is my tear-streaked face shoveling dirt on your grave."
"I'm gonna SEE this?!"

I gave it 2 episodes, & can't get behind it. Some of it's funny, but it has none of the acerbic edge that AD has. All of the parts involving the woman & the daughter are just way too sappy for my taste. It's a shame. But if they do turn it around & get some edge, y'all let me know, m'kay?

Then buy THE WIRE dvds, because he was on there, and was brilliant!
